And that MOBO will work well with Ubuntu Server? Just asking because a few months ago was trying to build a Linux desktop and no distros could get the LAN drivers working. It's possible that the LAN was damaged but still asking.
Also, what other storage can I use? Lots of hard drives I see on Newegg are overkill for what I would like to do. I do have some external hard drives I don't use, so would buying an enclosure kit be an option?
